Halftime: Celtics 40, Lakers 34

The first team to settle down will probably win Game 7 of the NBA Finals tonight. Each team looked a little swept up in the moment in the first half. The Boston Celtics seemed bent on hacking and whacking their way to a title, daring the Lakers to shove back. Referees Joey Crawford, Danny Crawford and Scott Foster put their whistles away, which benefited the Celtics greatly. The Lakers shot 26.5 percent, with Kobe Bryant missing 11 of 14 and Pau Gasol shanking 9 of 12. The Lakers outrebounded the Celtics, 29-21.
